    Hey Daniel!
    Great to see you back here! What a cool plant and photo!

    Do still get in touch if you’re in this part of the world. I can definitely offer you a sofa-bed in the space below me, unless it’s really cold.

    Just spent a few hours in Smith Pond fen, (I’m lookin’ at it out my window), with Eric Sorenson, an ecologist friend who co-wrote “Wetland, Woodland, Wildland: a guide to the natural communities of Vermont” with Liz Thompson. It’s a very diverse medium to rich fen. Eric IDed bulb-bearing water hemlock for me, which I’d just noticed the week before. Now I see it everywhere along the edges of the open water. Incredibly dissected leaf, a very slight plant, and deadly, deadly poisonous!

    Best! George ~

    Welcome back, Daniel. Stephen, et al. did a good job in your absence, but already I noticed that you include more links in your entries to other sources of information that they did. One link that I would have liked to have was an explanation of the etymology of the genus, but a little bit of searching found this page
    although I’m not sure what the gods of Olympus have to with this plant.
